Three Reasons

Above could have been a scene from the garage sale we had this Saturday. Plus the two ladies who taught me how to bargain last time I had a garage sale. It was a beautiful day, perfect to be spent outdoors doing things as a family. It was also a perfect Spring day to have a sale. I have neither done a lot of "garage saleing" nor hosted a sale my self in the Spring. So I wasn't sure how it would turn out. But , I could think of at least three reasons to justify doing a garage sale during the nontraditional (which is summer, here in the NW) season:
  1. No competition within miles in radius
  2. No need to sit in a stuffy garage or cook in the sun
  3. Anxiousness of one to get rid of the junk in the house, garage AND in the storage=satisfaction of the Spring cleaning fever
We had probably over 50 cars stop by last Saturday for the garage sale and collectively (with a few relatives of mine) made about $300 in that one day. Two cars pulled up before we posted the signs. They used the craigslist address which I posted late the night before. People are obviously garage sale hungry already. So c'mon, get your junk together and feed the masses!


  1. sounds successful! Way to go!

  2. $330 GREAT JOB There are some SERIOUS garage salers out there LOL
